On July 26, the University of Pittsburgh Institute for Cyber Law, Policy, and Security (Pitt Cyber), wrapped up its third annual Air Force Association Cyber Camp, a five-day intensive cybersecurity training for high school students. This year, 213 students from high schools in Pennsylvania and nine other states attended the camp to learn cybersecurity basics, such as protecting personal information online, or for advanced skills such as networking and operations security in Windows and Ubuntu. In this year’s cohort, 43 percent of students identifed as nonwhite and an all-female team took home the top prize during team-based IT skills competitions.
